5:13 am
dalmatian5

good morning
5:13 am
oodleberry

cranky?
5:13 am
dalmatian5

I live in CA - right down the street from Disneyland
5:13 am
oodleberry

nah...
5:15 am
oodleberry

oh wonderful my most 'favoritest' place in the world ... not a good experience
5:15 am
lynxxx

Wow - must be busy neigbourhood, does that suit you Dal
5:16 am
lynxxx

favoritest - good phantom today
5:16 am
oodleberry

well sorry if I came across that way
5:17 am
dalmatian5

I cannot imagine living anywhere else. We are no more than a couple of hours from snow or ocean. Things are open 24 hours a day. Too many people and too much smog but nothing is every perfect.
5:17 am
lynxxx

not at all Oodle - just joshing you
5:18 am
Eva

good morning everyone from snowy New England
5:18 am
lynxxx

hi Eva & Merp
5:19 am
dalmatian5

where in New England?
5:19 am
Eva

so far this has been a very cooperative grid
5:19 am
Eva

usually in Vermont dal, but in Boston right now
5:20 am
dalmatian5

Have you ever been to Nova Scotia?
5:20 am
Eva

yes, I visited a couple of years ago. Beautiful!
5:20 am
Eva

how's life lynxxx?
5:20 am
dalmatian5

After hearing the music from that area I would love to visit
5:21 am
lynxxx

slow, pleasant, nice weather, green from rains we have had - pretty good actually Eva
5:21 am
Eva

I don't remember where in Australia you are from. One of my closest friends lives in Sydney, where she moved from Adelaide. We met while she was studying here and I've always wanted to visit, but the length of travel is utterly daunting.
5:23 am
lynxxx

I am from Melbourne, Victoria...in between Adelaide & Sydney sort of. MRP/Lickety and Andree are from Sydney. It's not that far, I am sure your friend would agree
5:24 am
oodleberry

well when I lived in ft lauderdale and when I did there were no 24 hour places there
5:25 am
Eva

My friend is 20 years younger than I am and likes traveling. I have always hated it...the process that is. ONce I get somewhere Im fine, but flying is torture for me. I've always dreamt of having the time someday to go by ship.
5:25 am
oodleberry

snow in florida? I don't understand
5:26 am
lynxxx

Dalmation - LoriP is from Nova Scotia - online occasionally
5:26 am
Eva

hey oodle-did you get the storm up there too?
5:27 am
Eva

I was going to drive back to Vermont yesterday, but am snowbound until tomorrow.
5:27 am
lynxxx

Keep buying those lottery tickets Eva..we have just had a monstrous new cruise ship leave here for Sydney. Can't remember what US actor was on it
5:28 am
oodleberry

dunno haven't looked out yet... but if it was a storm I don,t here any wind... and I have been to nova scotia, PEI, Madeleine Islands and New Brunswick ... beautiful places
5:29 am
Eva

I've read up on freighters, which are much smaller-only carry a few dozen passengers, none of the cruise ship hoopla, but still comfortable accommodations. That sounds much more my cup of tea. But it takes longer, of course, because of the stops they make.
5:30 am
dalmatian5

I will have to look for her -thanks
5:31 am
oodleberry

it is very calm out side... don't see even any wind... but to what storm are you referring
5:32 am
Eva

maybe it didn't get that far north oodle-Vermont is getting between 1-2 feet of snow. Started last night and is going through tomorrow morning.
5:32 am
Eva

what kind of dog is that in your icon lynxxx?
5:33 am
oodleberry

looks like a grey hound or a whippet
5:33 am
Eva

it does, but a bit more massive in build
5:34 am
dalmatian5

the biggest problems with freighters is that you have to use their scheduled stops and sometimes there is not time to get off or there might be a delay. I have a friend who took one and she loved it. There were only about 6 passengers. They ate with the crew. No planned activities and lots of stairs to climb to differnt decks. But she enjoyed every second of it.
5:34 am
lynxxx

Greyhound Eva...photo got squeezed in a bit
5:34 am
oodleberry

probably the angle of the photo... or it might be an afghan?
5:34 am
Eva

well, the first 184 words flew by...now things are very slow
5:34 am
Eva

s/he is beautiful lynxxx
5:35 am
lynxxx

afghan! no crocheting on my dog
5:35 am
oodleberry

ah HA my third guess was right
5:35 am
oodleberry

oh
5:35 am
Eva

That sounds wonderful dalmatian! I love being on the water, so don't know if I'd care much about not getting off often.
5:36 am
lynxxx

he is lovely Eva, Stewart Little by name. he came with that and I didn't bother to change it as little kids love it
5:36 am
oodleberry

there is a hound same build as the two latter but furrier
5:36 am
Eva

The cruise ships have always sounded like my idea of hell....crowds, constant activity, lots of drinking. Plus I'd weigh a ton by the time I got there.
5:37 am
dalmatian5

No dress up nights on a freighter so can take lots of casual clothing.
5:37 am
Eva

He looks strikingly gentle and wise.
5:38 am
oodleberry

I would love to do that .. now a days people treat tourists, customers, clients as numbers... all we are are a way to make them money or a statistic that's all
5:38 am
lynxxx

Oodle - perhaps you are thinking of a Saluki, not as much hair as an afghan
5:39 am
oodleberry

never heard of dressing up on a train... what class do you travel dalmatian??
5:39 am
Eva

Some day dalmatian. Although I have to say that I am quite content with staying home. It's mainly that I miss my friends who live aborad. When I was younger I went to Israel quite often, and then once to Uruguay, but not much travel aside from that.
5:40 am
oodleberry

no never heard of that one... had the world book encyclopedia when I was growing up and always looked at the dog pages
5:40 am
lynxxx

not a freight train Oodle - a freighter as in cargo carrying boat
5:42 am
oodleberry

ohhhhhhh well I would enjoy that if they could garentee that I didn,t get sea sick
5:42 am
dalmatian5

it is getting to where it is a pain to fly with all the security issues. It takes hours and hours to get out of Los Angeles, CA
5:43 am
oodleberry

and now I understand about dressing up ... kewel ... eating with the crew would be neat... I would ask a lot of quesitons... think my mother would even like that
5:44 am
dalmatian5

The main thing about a freighter is you have to be able to entertain yourself as it is a working ship and it does not cater to tourists. I would enjoy it myself.
5:45 am
Eva

sounds like a great opportunity to meditate, read, write and just watch the sea.
5:45 am
oodleberry

well it sounds it would be a lot cheaper than a cruise ship
5:45 am
Eva

it is less, but still expensive.
5:46 am
lynxxx

Wonder if it would be cheaper than the cheap air flights you can get nowadays
5:47 am
Eva

no-flight is still much, much cheaper.
5:47 am
oodleberry

what is the name of your dog again lyn
5:47 am
oodleberry

sayku?
5:47 am
Eva

Although they are working ships, they do supply you with excellent meals, services, etc.
5:47 am
lynxxx

No, I have confused you. Stewart is a Greyhound
5:48 am
Eva

And he doesn't mind being called by a rat's name?
5:48 am
Eva

although I think that was spelled Stuart, wasn't it?
5:48 am
lynxxx

Mouse I think. No, he's doesn't seem offended
5:48 am
lynxxx

yes
5:49 am
oodleberry

no what is that name you said
5:49 am
lynxxx

A Saluki
5:49 am
oodleberry

I looked at the afghan and the head is much more furry..
5:49 am
Eva

you're right lynxx-don't know why I remembered him as a rat
5:50 am
lynxxx

You are probably thing of that other animated movie...Ratatouie ?
5:50 am
oodleberry

ok yes it would resemgle the saluki more but is it a new breed? cause I never saw it in the encyclopedia
5:51 am
Eva

no-some old children's book.
5:51 am
Eva

maybe the rat from Charlottes web.
5:51 am
lynxxx

Saluki are a very old breed, one of the originals they say. Not very common in Western countries
5:52 am
Eva

amazing the things which can be "iered" or "iested"
5:52 am
oodleberry

ok I missed something why are we talking about rats now hee hee hee
5:53 am
Eva

yes! Just finished off the w's.
5:53 am
oodleberry

oh probably in eastern europe... because I don,t see people usually owning dogs in the middle east and certainly not in asia wher eyou WOULD NOT want to bring your cat let alone your dog
5:55 am
lynxxx

they are an arabian breed Oodle, greyhounds are probably of the same origins...sight hounds.breed for hunting in the deserts - both would go back to ancient Egypt in one form or another
5:56 am
oodleberry

oh ok ty
5:57 am
Eva

43 left and time to take a break. see you guys later.
5:58 am
lynxxx

bye Eva
5:59 am
oodleberry

don't see the middle east as dog loving countries... now france I think goes over board with there dogs... they even allow them in restaurants which I think should not be allowed ... however here dogs are like as in france only they cannot go into public buildings
5:59 am
oodleberry

bbye eva

Hello Sprite!
6:00 am

hey lyn :) How are you doing?
6:02 am
lynxxx

All good, boring myself with this grid but not tired enough for bed yet. Have you started yet, I give you about 45 minutes!

hehehe lyn
6:04 am
lynxxx

just a mental block I have - one of many!
6:05 am
sprite

it doesn't matter at all, because everybody knows what you mean
6:07 am
lynxxx

How are you Sprite? any good news
6:09 am
sprite

again a little more feeling in my feet. Especially the upper side of the toes. And the side effect of the meds that has been bothering me most (severe depression) seems to ebb slightly. We are going in the right direction at least :)
6:09 am
sprite

thanks for asking, lyn
6:10 am
lynxxx

That sounds hopeful! Will the meds have to be 'forever' or just until you get your feeling back?
6:11 am
sprite

no, they are supposed to replace my other pain meds. They work on nerve pain only. It is weird stuff, but if it gives me back some feeling in the feet and it can replace the morphine, I would be most grateful.
6:14 am
lynxxx

one day Sprite you are going to get past all this - you are amazing
6:15 am
Anniebrook

I dont mean to butt in but I have nerve damage in my feet..sprite, is that your malady too?
6:15 am
sprite

amazing why? But I hope you are right about getting past this. It would be so marvelous.
6:15 am
lynxxx

hi Annie

hi lynxxxie
6:16 am
oodleberry

hi miss annie
6:16 am
Anniebrook

hi sir oodle
6:16 am
sprite

hi Annie, how frustrating!
No, the cause is probably in my lower back, but the neurologist couldn't exactly pin it down. The meds are an experiment of his. I was rather negative about it, but it looks like he may have stuck gold.
6:17 am
lynxxx

Because you live with all this 'crap' and seemingly function pretty normally - beloved by your family and all here!

sprite, could you tell me the name of the med. I will talk to my neurologist about it. I would appreciate that.
6:18 am
sprite

my rule #1, lyn: to let my loved ones suffer as little as possible from this, lol. And they are incredibly loving and great supports as well.
With so much love and all the other blessings in my life, I try to stay grateful and not linger too much on the handicaps and pain.
6:19 am
sprite

it is called neurontin, Annie, but that is the brand name. Let me look up the rather weird real name of the stuff.
6:19 am
dalmatian5

can anyone give a hint on the second in 7/28 and the in 9/
6:19 am
Anniebrook

It is gabapentin. I take 3000 mg. of that everyday.
6:19 am
sprite

ah there it is: Gabapentine
6:20 am
Anniebrook

sprite, look at my post right before yours. I have been taking Neurontin for years.
6:20 am
sprite

does it do any good for you, Annie? I am still in the building-up phase, taking it very very slowly because I often have bad reactions to meds.
6:21 am
lynxxx

in9 means to start something, like a protest or argument
6:21 am
Anniebrook

sprite, the only way I would know is to stop taking gabapentin and I am very leery of doing that. But I do have pain.
6:21 am
Flask1

Hi everyone.....is it a friendly one today or what??
6:21 am

6:21 am

hi Flask, very friendly. Easy, in fact.
6:22 am
Anniebrook

Hi Flask, I havent started yet.
6:22 am
lynxxx

hi Flask - very friendly - lots of ends
6:22 am
Flask1

Great!.....Music to my ears!
6:22 am
dalmatian5

thanks lynxxx
6:23 am
sprite

ah I see, Annie. I wouldn't stop taking it!
I am to build this up to 6 pills a day, and build off the morphine after that. But headstrong as I am, I already started taking less morphine. So far, I can handle it. More pain, but also more feeling in the feet.
6:23 am
Anniebrook

I have no feeling in my feet.
6:24 am
sprite

do you know what caused that, Annie?
6:25 am
Anniebrook

sprite, that is was is so frustrating. I went for all the tests (even the painful EEG) and they do not know. I have peripheral idiopatic neuropathy.
6:26 am
sprite

same here, they don't have a clue why the feeling is disappearing. Had all those tests as well. Idiopatic, lollll. Doctor lingo for "we don't have a clue".
6:26 am
lynxxx

How long has this been for you Annie?
6:26 am
Anniebrook

Right! And it started so slowly I didnt know what was happening. I have learned to live with it.
6:27 am
Anniebrook

lynxxx, It is about 10 years.
6:28 am
sprite

I admire you, Annie. It is driving me bananas. I already have much trouble walking because of pelvic damage. And not feeling my feet is not helping. I would prefer pain over not feeling. But we don't get a choice, do we.
6:29 am
Anniebrook

sprite, and I admire you. We learn to muddle on the best we can and we do a pretty good job of it.
6:29 am
sprite

wow, that is a very long time. Could you give me some pointers? As how to handle it? Like how to handle wounds you don't feel, and how to learn to balance without feeling your feet?
6:29 am
sprite

*hugs Annie and smiles*
Muddling on, now that is something we ARE good at!
6:31 am
Anniebrook

Oh sprite, I do not have wounds to deal with. My balance is not that good but I manage. You are very young. Are you diabetic by any chance? Hugs back to you.
6:32 am
sprite

no, that was the first thing we checked. No diabetic at all, thanks God. Ok, I will keep practising, and trying to emulate you :)
6:33 am
Anniebrook

sprite and I will emulate you. I am sure the Neurontin will give you relief. I will keep you in my prayers.
6:33 am
lynxxx

How amazing is this babble arena - who would have guessed you 2 would have the same problem. I hope you can help each other out a bit!
6:34 am
Anniebrook

I hope so lynxxx. sprite is a dear person. Now I am going to make coffee. *muddling into the kitchen*
6:35 am
lynxxx

lol
6:35 am
sprite

Annie already helped me. Knowing I am not the only one is great, though I would wish for Annie to not suffer from this. And knowing one can learn to walk without feeling the feet is also great.
6:43 am
sprite

did I lose connection again or is it all quiet?
6:44 am
lynxxx

just quiet, I'm fading - but waiting for your fireworks - only 3 mniutes left
6:45 am
Anniebrook

I'm back with coffee...anyone?
6:45 am
sprite

lol, I chatted way too much for that. Still need about 30 words.
6:45 am
lynxxx

no thanks Annie
6:45 am
sprite

oh please Annie. I love coffee
6:46 am
sprite

not just before bed, lyn :)
6:46 am
Anniebrook

*pouring a nice fresh cup of coffee for sprite* cream and sugar on the sideboard*
6:47 am
sprite

lovely, Annie, thanks. And I will hold you in my prayers as well.
6:47 am
Anniebrook

Thank you, sprite
6:47 am
sprite

(and not just for the coffee)
6:48 am
Anniebrook

LOL. I have my morning coffee with my babbling.
6:49 am
sprite

I always enjoy the time zones, and marvel at chatting with friends who are in different parts of the day.
6:49 am
Anniebrook

sprite, is it lunchtime for you? and I wonder what it is for lynxxx.
6:50 am
oodleberry

almost bed time for lyn
6:50 am
sprite

after, even, it is 10 to 2 in the afternoon.
6:50 am
lynxxx

this friend is off to bed - goodnight friends! (close to 11pm here Annie)
6:50 am

sleep well, lyn, and dream even better.

Hello, everyone... Would someone mind telling me how many words there are for todays grid, please?
6:50 am

233 Sheimi, and hello
6:50 am
Anniebrook

good night, lynxxxxie, sweet dreams
6:51 am
Sheimi492

Hello Sprite, thank-you. And good night, Lyn. Come back soon!
6:52 am
sprite

yw Sheimi and good luck. It is a gentle one today
6:53 am
Sheimi492

Yeah... I still doubt I'll get fireworks though, lol.
6:54 am
sprite

you might with this one, I think. But don't let wanting to find all words ruin your pleasure in playing :)
6:54 am
Sheimi492

Of course... I find Babble quite relaxing, it's a nice laid back game that you can take your time on...
6:55 am
sprite

oh yes! I totally agree. I don't like time-limited games where you must go against the clock, they stress me out. 24 hours is enough for me, usually, grin.
6:56 am
Sheimi492

Lol, I don't like games where you go against the clock either, I find that hard because you're trying to think at the same time as watching the clock.
6:57 am
sprite

I also tend to block on the inside when I get stressed. Couldn't find the simplest words if the clock were ticking.
6:59 am
Sheimi492

Yeah... That's why I like Babble, sometimes the grids can be either really easy or really hard, but even if it is, you can still take your time... Way better than rushing to beat the clock.
6:59 am
sprite

:)
Glad to have you with us, Sheimi!
7:00 am
Sheimi492

Aw, thanks! That's kind of you to say, Sprite. :)
7:01 am
Sheimi492

I'm gonna be off now, will be back soon! :)

7:35 am

7:35 am

Oh dear. Sorry to hear that.
7:35 am

and I think the city condemned the PB ... don't you see all the 'police' tape around it
7:35 am
Plebian

cold is below zero
7:35 am
herinfernallady

O well.
7:35 am

7:39 am
Plebian

Later, must go poof! Thanks for bagels and cream cheese
7:40 am
Anniebrook

anytime, pleb...just say the word
7:41 am
oodleberry

the reason being is when you say PB it brings it out more then if you say nothing... sometimes I don't even see any words that come up in chat until someone points it out which makes it worse
7:41 am
Anniebrook

No it doesn't...that is the fun of it. It is all in fun, sir oodle
7:42 am
oodleberry

furthermore I have enough problems expressing myself already and I can't be bothered with making the hints for words I write in normal chat
7:42 am

8:40 am
72 Temple Owl

well you would not if you were here. it's 22 with a wind chill of zero
8:40 am
Haz1558

Husband went to bed, what he didn't know didn't disturb him.
8:40 am
Haz1558

It's still very cold here, no sign of a thaw.
8:40 am
bichon

A bad night for Biscuit is that he has to sleep on the bottom end of the bed and not sleeping on his own pillow between us. Of course he's only 16 lbs
8:41 am
Sally-catlover

When we first found our cats, they were restricted firmly to the office and utility. Now they are both sprawled out happily in front of the log burner!
8:41 am

This is the 4th day of snow, probably the last
8:42 am

8:42 am
72 Temple Owl

ty bo. i often need reminding.
8:42 am
Sally-catlover

8:44 am
flosey

need a clue for te5 following the canvas dwellings, please?
8:44 am
Haz1558

Sally, the pavements in town are similarly lethal. Freezing streets, a skiff of rain = skating rink.
8:45 am
gramma

Hi everyone. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...We have a good foot with no end in sight.
8:45 am

I've seen those advertised bichon, so they do work?
8:48 am
Sally-catlover

I've decided to get some of those, bichon. I have to go over the garden several times a day, and it isn't level so in the ice it is really difficult. They are called Yaktrax
8:48 am
bichon

Yes, they do. There are "Yak Traks" and something I gust got which actually have mental spikes in them. All work
8:48 am
Sally-catlover

Mental spikes?! LOL

bichon

ty
8:57 am
bojazz

They're really books for children, but well written and very funny.
9:01 am
Atalante

<- Haz, refresh :)
9:02 am
Sally-catlover

Well written is the key. I still read children's books sometimes.
9:02 am
Haz1558

(The Jennings and Wiliam books, I mean. Biggles was a bit more gung-ho and warlike)
9:02 am
Sally-catlover

Love your happy picture of Hobbit, Ata.

I bought a gorgeous card a few weeks ago of the Menai St6. Looked on the back and to my horror it called it the "Menai St6s". To anyone Bangorian, that is a travesty. There is only *one* Menai St6. So I wrote to the publisher and informed them. Waiting for a response (ha!)
9:25 am
Haz1558

Don't expect an answer any time soon. They probably don't care.
9:26 am

I'm sure
9:26 am

9:31 am

ok.....a cllue....if something is not squint...what is it?
9:32 am
welki

so, i gather it's a street. more than that, why is it special?
9:32 am
welki

(no photographs come up either)
9:32 am
Atalante

it's a big bit of sea between Wales and Anglesey
9:32 am
Uneaixoise

narrow channel of the sea joining two larger bodies of water
9:33 am
welki

so why would you call it Menai St6?
9:34 am
welki

ohhhh, what an idiot i am! nevermind
9:34 am
Atalante

because that's what it's called LOL
9:34 am

9:34 am

Don't worry Welki.....you're not alone...!
9:34 am
Atalante

very good excuse indeed
9:35 am

9:42 am
welki

(btw, just for a little added hilarity, my google search was for 'menai st6' ... no wonder there were no results!)
9:43 am
Atalante

looooooool :)
9:44 am
welki

<-- always best to be able to laugh at oneself ... that way, you can be almost certain not to upset anyone else :)
9:44 am
Atalante

sorry, but that's made my day :)
9:45 am
welki

glad to bring tears to your eyes in a good way *lol*
9:46 am
Atalante

have you got a nice big mug of coffee no? :)
9:46 am
Atalante

now!
9:46 am
welki

i do, but to be honest, it really has nothing to do with the lack of coffee. sometimes i'm simply a bonehead :)
9:46 am
Atalante

aren't we all!
9:47 am
welki

depends on who you talk to *lol*
9:48 am
Atalante

well I am on a regular basis lol. Only Haz is perfect
9:49 am
Haz1558

Except when it comes to knowing Star Wars things.
9:49 am
Atalante

even perfection has flaws
9:49 am
Haz1558

And dealing with needles and thread issues.
9:49 am
Haz1558

I'm not good with numbers.
9:50 am
Haz1558

I'm hopeless in crowds of people.
9:50 am
Haz1558

And I've discovered that I'm no Torvill or Dean on ice.
9:50 am
Haz1558

Apart from that.....
9:50 am
Atalante

looool. noone is. apart from Torvill and Dean
9:51 am
Haz1558

I know.
9:53 am
Atalante

but you do have a Spaniel of Glory and George Clooney in a cupboard
9:53 am
Haz1558

This is true. Those are significant redeeming features.
9:54 am
Atalante

and could write your own cookbooks
9:55 am
welki

i wish i had an admiration society, even if only one member
9:55 am
Haz1558

The market's flooded with cookbooks, I'd have to think of a different angle.
9:56 am
Atalante

no Northern Irish cookbooks though?
9:56 am
Haz1558

Ata and I could start up an admiration society for you and then there'd be two members!
9:56 am
Atalante

we love you tooooo welki!
9:57 am
Haz1558

Two members to start with and I'm sure we could get more very quickly.
9:57 am
welki

means i would have to start sharing my peculiar talents ... like being able to do a matrix move while falling onto the sidewalk (because the front of my coat shouldn't get dirty)
9:57 am
Haz1558

What are your admirable features, apart from being Canadian?
9:58 am
Atalante

she appreciates spaniels, that's a good start
9:58 am
welki

i've sunk an unsinkable boat
9:58 am
rumplestiltskin

clue for the in6/18 after the in6/24 please
9:58 am
Haz1558

Did the people on board admire you for sinking their unsinkable boat?
9:58 am
Atalante

that's quite impressive!
9:58 am
Haz1558

in6/18 - put in something somewhere
9:59 am
welki

they waved from the floating dock. silently. until i surfaced and gave a thumb's up. and then they still were silent. until i started to laugh. and then they cautiously joined in. (can you tell they were husband and children?)
10:00 am
Haz1558

So, you sank the boat under yourself?
10:00 am
Atalante

what was it? a RIB or something?
10:01 am
Haz1558

RIB - rapidly inflated boat?
10:01 am
welki

i don't know what an RIB is. rowboat? yes, it was. and yes, i pushed off the dock, got caught somehow, flipped it over, slipped underneath and we both sunk (temporarily)
10:01 am
Atalante

I think she's been overcome
10:01 am
Atalante

looooool. yes, rigid inflatable boat. *generally* unsinkable
10:01 am
welki

no, it was a heavy old thing, not rapidly inflating .. although my ego was rapidly deflated
10:02 am
Atalante

I hope someone got photos
10:02 am
welki

with a thankful sigh, she says, "No."
10:02 am
Atalante

loool
10:02 am
Atalante

oooo! more snow!
10:03 am
welki

this was after my husband (a lightweight at the time) and i went for a row ... i sat down and the boat tipped up ... i am forever known to my father in law as, "The Admiral"
10:03 am
welki

<-- is no lightweight
10:03 am
Atalante

lesson of the day: don't get in a boat with welki!
10:04 am
Haz1558

It's easy to admire 'The Admiral'!
10:04 am
welki

Bon Voyage, Titanic!
10:04 am

Okay, time for me to be off, papers to read, time to fritter. Enjoy the grid, it's very friendly. Bye for now!

I'm drinking single malt
10:08 am

i like single malt, too.
10:09 am
Atalante

at least you got something:)
10:09 am
rubyfoo

which one? I drink cragganmore
10:09 am
rubyfoo

he drinks v dry bombay gin with a "drop" of noilly prat
10:10 am
welki

we have auchentoshan in the cupboard, have tried several. (i'm not finicky, will drink anything)
10:10 am
rubyfoo

lol, in the end, so will I, but some of them are a little peaty to suit me
10:10 am
Atalante

I dont know how anyone could drink "neat" gin
10:11 am
welki

mine was bombay sapphire with m&r vermouth (can't find NP here in calgary)
10:11 am
rubyfoo

I'll look for the one you mention, but I think the choices in France are probably more limited
10:11 am
welki

ohh, you could, ata .. bombay sapphire is a very aromatic gin (boodles is a good mild gin for non-believers)
10:12 am
rubyfoo

my son (in the us) knows all the single malts, I'll ask him about yours and hv written down the name
10:12 am
welki

nooo, don't look for it ruby, it's awful.
10:12 am
rubyfoo

lol
10:12 am
Atalante

I love gin in drinks, but I can't bear it neat
10:12 am
rubyfoo

neat with evian and an olive isn't bad
10:13 am
rubyfoo

smirnoff with evian and a tuscan pepper is better -- no ice!
10:13 am
welki

there was one single malt i couldn't drink .. maybe it was that 'peaty' thing going on
10:13 am
rubyfoo

I guess you can tell what we do here in the country.....
10:13 am

Help, please. I have 2 left. EM7/32 and IN9.

welki

<-- would love to host a fishing lodge
3:45 pm
Atalante

3:45 pm

3:47 pm
Bugsaw

sorry I can't spell... No English class for me
3:47 pm
stidmama

newts are fun. as long as they don't actually get caught on the hook. I liked fishing more for being out on the water than anything. but the good food fish went away, and I hated dogfish and bullheads (the first are small useless sharks and the latter are small useless critters with poison spines) all the flounder seemed to go away.
3:47 pm
Atalante

I love dogfish
3:48 pm
stidmama

LOL what a grin! she's beautiful, Atalante
3:48 pm
Atalante

4:35 pm

it's also something you say when clinking drinks together before downing them. At speed, generally.
4:35 pm

4:41 pm
oodleberry

hi babbz
4:41 pm

in9 = start a fight (or INve******* a crime)
4:42 pm

Hi Pini and Hi Babbz, I hope you had a happy new Year.
4:42 pm

Hi babbz
4:42 pm
Pinikula

hi oodle and babbz...nope, haven't been drinking...just a big threshhold to cross entering the grid :)
4:42 pm
Pinikula

hiya red!
4:42 pm
babbz

thanks and hi to you all!
4:44 pm
redturtlehead

ahhh dog is once again asking me to go out, loudly....
4:44 pm
babbz

Has anyone seen any good movies this Holiday Season? We're going to catch a movie and there are so many good ones out that I'm not sure which one to hit first.
4:44 pm
Pinikula

you're welcome ;)
4:45 pm
Pinikula

I saw "Alvin and the Chipmunks: the Squeakquel" with my gdau...it was very cute :)
4:45 pm
Atalante

hi teulu!
4:45 pm
Pinikula

I wanna see "Avatar"...the reviews of the lay persons have been really good
4:45 pm
babbz

Think I'll wait till my grandbaby comes in town for that one! I did see Avatar in 3-D, and loved it
4:46 pm
babbz

Lay persons?
4:46 pm
babbz

OMG I'm so out of it!
4:46 pm
Pinikula

people other than the overpriced movie reviewers
4:46 pm
Atalante

it's meant to be quite a spectacle, if not a very inspiring storyline
4:47 pm
babbz

I have to check that one out. Did anyone see the Blind Side?
4:47 pm
Pinikula

Not yet...another one I'd like to see...the storyline is very intriguing
4:47 pm
babbz

I thought you meant the Lay Persons was a movie, LOL Pinikula!!
4:47 pm
oodleberry

it didn't interest me
4:48 pm
Pinikula

* giggle * No babbz...
4:48 pm
Pinikula

I like "feel good" movies, oodle, thus the draw
4:48 pm
babbz

Avatar was amazing - the commercials look stupid, but the movie itself was fabulous
4:49 pm
babbz

The reviewers hated Titanic, too - but I enjoyed that one as well. I think they just don't like James Cameron very much, as he spends so much $$ on making movies.
4:50 pm
Pinikula

That's why I don't particular care to see/hear reviews of the movie critics; I prefer the lay-persons review
4:50 pm
Pinikula

I liked Titanic, too ;)
4:50 pm
babbz

I agree
4:50 pm
oodleberry

as I do .. .I don't like suspense movies and even if there is some suspense is some movies I don,t like it...... Give me sound of music, mary poppins, harry potter, lion king type movies any day
4:51 pm
babbz

harry potter had plenty of suspense! but i know what you mean, oodle
4:51 pm
babbz

i just like to escape
4:51 pm
oodleberry

well I guess that's right babbz my bad
4:51 pm
Atalante

the LIon King is the only movie I've ever cried at in the cinema
4:51 pm
Pinikula

I still haven't been able to get my head around ol' Harry Potter (either in text or video)
4:52 pm
oodleberry

really? I love it p;ini
4:52 pm
redturtlehead

yo uknow, Pini, I thought I would dilike Harry, but I rather became addicted to it, like the rest of the world.
4:52 pm
oodleberry

I have to finish the last book
4:52 pm
wht

My wife watches movies on DVD while I play Babble. Or vice-versa.
4:52 pm
babbz

I enjoyed the books while reading them, however I couldn't tell you what happened in one book vs another - they all me** together
4:52 pm
redturtlehead

I am still shocked, that people, have not read the whole series (Oodle you!)
4:53 pm
Pinikula

I've never really wrapped my head arond the Tolkein triology, either...
4:53 pm
redturtlehead

the movies just are not as good, I never really saw the last one.
4:53 pm
redturtlehead

Pini!!!! the book so fmy Childhood, TOlkien.
4:53 pm
Pinikula

I mean, I like the original animated Hobbit, but after that...well...
4:53 pm
Pinikula

sorry, red!!!
4:54 pm
redturtlehead

and I hated that first Hobbitt movie becase the characters didn't look like the people in my head.
4:54 pm
Nancy Boy

I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The hobbits are ADORABLE.
4:54 pm
redturtlehead

Pini, my Dad read them to me, and I think that made it more interesting.
4:54 pm
redturtlehead

the mordern Films were much more to my liking.
4:55 pm
babbz

I have to say that Babble sure cuts into my reading time and that is sad. I'm trying to plod my way through "A Beautiful Mind" but I think all the references to the math is probably way over my head
4:55 pm
Pinikula

that's possible, red...hi NB, I can watch about 3 minutes of LOTR before I lose all interest
4:55 pm
redturtlehead

pini, that amazes me. those movies were so well done and on the big screen, wow!
4:56 pm

4:59 pm
babbz

I just watched a movie on the computer that was directed by Peter Jackson (of the LOTR fame) called The Lovely Bones. He does create a pretty good fantasy world in this one, too.
4:59 pm
wht

Is there some significance to 9:00 pm?
4:59 pm
wht

Or is that just a good time for a glass of wi4?
4:59 pm
Nancy Boy

I LOVE the book The Lovely Bones, was the film good?
4:59 pm
redturtlehead

wht is being careful not to enter the PB!
4:59 pm
babbz

Surprisingly better than I thought it would be - and I loved the book, too.
4:59 pm
redturtlehead

the book was a good book, Nancy.
5:00 pm
Nancy Boy

wasn't it so touching? Made me cry a bit!
5:00 pm
wht

red, because if I do, you have so many goodies I would spoil my dinner.
5:01 pm
redturtlehead

true wht, I have already had dinner.
5:01 pm
Atalante

it was a lovely book
5:01 pm
babbz

If you caught the movie "Atonement" a while back, the girl (the one who lied) was the protagonist in "Bones" - she's a fabulous actress. It was sad, but more suspense than sadness. Stanley Tucci plays the bad guy - and he was great, too.
5:01 pm
redturtlehead

Ok, this is not good, we have a freeze warning on, an actual hard freeze warning for Florida. bad for fruit. and for me.
5:02 pm
Nancy Boy

Nope...once more though, I read the book!
5:02 pm
Pinikula

well, shoot, red...maybe move up here...we're supposed to be 50-53F this week (night lows in the 40's)
5:02 pm

5:04 pm
wht

We've had about 9 inchis of snow here over the past 2 days.
5:04 pm

5:04 pm
oodleberry

i had to buy a heater when I was in florida for the ONLY two weeks it was cold
5:04 pm

Slow and steady and twice a day you have to go out and shovel some more.
5:04 pm
babbz

I bet it is, Red.
5:04 pm
oodleberry

apts were required by law to supply heat
5:05 pm

5:10 pm
redturtlehead

1994? maybe.
5:11 pm

5:11 pm

I'll admit it's snowed since then, but nothing this winter yet!
5:11 pm
redturtlehead

Yes indeed it was a long long time ago. I didn't live there long though....
5:12 pm
redturtlehead

the oddest thing was that the temp was over 100 in June when I arrived. People kept saying that was odd, I thought they were lying until the next summer....
5:13 pm
Pinikula

100F in June is rather odd; we normally get there sometime in Aug/Sep
5:15 pm

5:17 pm

good point, babbz...but it's still about an 1-1.5 hour drive to do so...
5:17 pm

Good evening. 44 left, but I will do my usual pattern of abandoning it when I get to 20 or 10 or so--it's a theoretical completion, as opposed to an actual.

It seems like it has been ag 4/6 since I got fireworks Was hoping to make a fr5/18 start this year & start the year with FWs on the first day. Thought it woud be ne4/4 to get FWs on the 1st day of the new year However, that didn't fa 4/7 so well for me. Wh 4/9 I en5/10ed Babble I was hoping for a small grid, but no such luck was se4/4 to me. I fe4/7 I won't be able to finish this one either. I fr4/7 that I won't be getting fireworks for awhile since I have to go back to work tomorrow. I'm not in the rigtht st 5/10 of mind to go to work. I actually almost shed some te4/4 about my vacation ending. But, I am trying to ge4/6 myself up to going back to work. Hoping to go to bed at ni4/4. I've gotten plenty of re 4/4 during this vacation. I'm off to be a me 4/5 ea 5/10 for dinner.Adios and stay warm on this cold wi 6/30 evening everybody.
